Kristin Chenoweth insists her poisonous character is not bad, just a little "misunderstood" and emotionally vulnerable. However, Gabi may be emotional, but she is almost as villainous as Nigel.
Gabi is a tiny, pink, cute, but poisonous, dart frog who has been stuck in a jar in the marketplace, watching Nigel from afar with adoring eyes. She realizes it is a bit of a stretch for a frog to have feelings for a bird, especially since touching him would kill him, but she is thrilled to be joining Nigel on his quest for revenge. She may be small, but her villainous heart is large.
